Alli and breastfeeding?

Has anyone tried Alli while breastfeeding? I know they say don't use it while breastfeeding but that is only because they have done a study on it yet. It is believed not to get into the milk because it doesn't go into the blood stream, but has't been proven yet. I am thinking about trying it and wanted to see what other mothers thought about it?!

  • Diets and diet aids (if they even work) are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals.

  • If you have to ask- you already know its not a good idea. Would you give your baby a diet pill?? Absolutely not- so why take the chance of it going through your milk.
